The Arizona Coyotes will send forward prospect Dylan Guenther to its AHL affiliate in Tucson to start the 2023-24 season.

Guenther was the Coyotes first round pick in the 2021 draft and has appeared in 33 games in the NHL last season scoring six goals and nine assists.

His 15 points ranked 15th on the team last season, when he was just 19-years-old.

The Coyotes also announced Zach Sanford and Ivan Prosvetov were assigned to waivers with the intention of assigning the pair to the Roadrunners.

Travis Boyd was also placed on waivers.

The move likely opens a roster spot for Michael Carcone who logged two assists in the team’s final preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks, a 7-1 win for Arizona.

They open their season with a four-game road trip starting Friday against the New Jersey Devils.
